Policy - P2P Foundation

Our economy prospers when the Internet is equally open to every good idea. Our democracy flourishes when all ideas can get an equal hearing. Our culture is enriched when anyone can create a song, a movie, a book, or manifesto.

Finland’s Next Laws To Emerge From Online Crowdsourced Proposals

Finland’s Next Laws To Emerge From Online Crowdsourced Proposals | The Next Edge | Scoop.it

Finland now allows citizens to propose new laws online, and if an initiative gathers enough votes, the government must vote on it.


This year, Finland has taken two huge steps to make crowdsourced laws a reality. First, its constitution last March was modified to allow every citizen proposal that collects a mere 50,000 signatures to get voted on by Parliament. In response, a non-profit group of Helsinki entrepreneurs started a website called Open Ministry to allow people of voting age to propose initiatives online. The website uses APIs from banks and mobile operators to confirm identities. Recently, the Finnish Parliament approved the platform after verifying that the electronic identification process is secure.
